Constellation's proudest service may have occurred during the three years immediately before the Civil War when, as flagship of the navy's African Squadron, she led this nation's fight against the trans-Atlantic trafficking of slaves. Today, little is said or written about those times, and even less is known, but they and this ship were important parts of the struggle against slavery that would eventually overwhelm the nation and, ultimately, free a people.

e of the most exceptional collections of Asian art in North America takes center stage on Sunday, October 1, when the Walters Art Museum opens its new installation Arts of Asia. The dramatic display offers a rich exploration of artistic traditions from diverse cultures and regions across India, Nepal, Tibet, China, Korea, Japan, Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia. The stunning array of more than 150 works spanning 2,000 years includes 30 objects that have never been on view.
"Structure and Perspective" brings together commissioned works by Maryland-born artist David Brewster with objects from the Maryland Historical Society’s collection. This marrying of old with new, contemporary with “antique,” creates a dialogue that inspires thought-provoking discussions of how the objects of the past remain relevant to today’s ever-changing social landscape. It also highlights Brewster’s often challenging perspective on the modern world, one that looks to the overlooked or unseen.
